The Super Dragon Jimmy Page half-stack amp is a limited run based on his legendary Tony Franks’ modified 1968 Marshall Super Bass. An amp used all over Led Zeppelin II and beyond.

This Super Dragon Jimmy Page limited run all-tube half-stack is a recreation of the original 1968 Marshall Super Bass that he used on the Led Zeppelin II album, plus standout tracks like the guitar solo on Stairway to Heaven. This latest amp recreation follows the brand’s debut at NAMM 2020, marking a collaboration between Page, Perry Margouleff, and Mitch Colby.

Jimmy Page was recently spotted playing the new amp live at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, where he performed after an eight-year hiatus. He used the new Super Dragon to induct Link Wray with a performance of Rumble.

Modified Marshall

The original Marshall stack was modified in the USA by Tony Franks and has become a legendary amplifier for many Led Zeppelin aficionados. Mainly because, Page used it on so many classic recordings from their second album onwards and it covered a lot of ground, in terms of famous Zeppelin guitar tones.

Limited Edition

Sundragon will only be producing 50 units of the Super Dragon half-stack so I expect that they will sell out relatively quickly. Each amp uses high-end components and NOS GE 6550 tubes, plus Phillips mustard capacitors all are chosen to replicate exactly the tone of Page’s original modified 1968 Marshall Super Bass.

Production of the Super Dragon amplifiers is scheduled from November 2023 to mid-2024, so a very short run. The price has yet to be officially announced, though I would expect them to be pretty expensive, as such a short run and the NOS components used will also add to that cost, no doubt.

Should you be looking for something a little more affordable (and everything’s relative), then you could check out the 1959HW from Marshall. An authentic hand-wired reissue of the amp you’d have seen on-stage behind Zeppelin and many of their contemporaries.
